Good question. How fast would a completely virtualized OS running, say, Office 2003, as opposed to WINE running Office 2003?

I imagine WINE would still be faster, if by only a little bit. With something like Office 2003, I doubt the difference would be significant, but with games, it could be a fair difference.
